[laughter] we're in kind of bad shape, to say the least. i won't pursue that line any further -- [laughter] but, you know, i've got this old line, a guy ran up to me in the airport and said, say, anybody ever tell you you look a lot like senator m

of the start of his second term, president obama announced that he would spend this term at least in part on an issue commonly believed to be among the heaviest lifts in all of american politics. he said he would do something about gun violence. now the president can create certain changes by himself with his executive authority. he can make changes, not laws. he cannot change laws, but he can change things that the administration is responsible for itself. for big changes, though, for real reform, the president needs congress to pass new laws, and that's where the real political heavy lifting comes in. to do that political heavy lifting, the white house announced a new political strategy, or at least a new political tactic to try to get this done. the 2012 obama/biden reelection campaign would morph itself into an advocacy group, a powerful democratic grassroots activism machine. the old campaign would transfer to this new group its vast database of information about obama supporters, about voters. and then the new group would mobilize supporters to mobilize the president's agenda now, t

not figure out what they believe in and how to fight obama. >> are they on the wrong side of social issues? >> shear what they should do. they could be on some of it but it is not the social issues but the big questions. the country is going broke. and want not be big government but they cannot frame it in a way that says we don't care. >> what about speaker boehner and mcconnell and the leadership. >> there is no pro growth agenda to create jobs. there is nothing aspirational. you are right on social issues. there is no tolerance. bottom line, there is nothing for a voter to --. >> here is speaker boehner, react to what he said about the president. take a listen to this. >> so, we over the next 22 months, we will be the focus of this administration, as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. let me just say, i do believe that is their goal, to shove us into the dust bin of history. >>gregg: is he right? >> of course, but what president doesn't try to annihilate the opposition especially if they help him do it. in this case the republicans have each time they have negotiated with
citizens, but this is a preeminent issue with those citizens. >> ifill: mccain also said the country cannot continue to deny citizenship to children brought to the u.s. illegally. president obama has said immigration reform is at the top of his second term agenda. today his spokesman jay carney welcomed the senate agreement. >> this is a big deal. this is an important development. this is in keeping with the principles the president has been espousing for a long time, in keeping with bipartisan efforts in the past, and with the effort this president believes has to end in a law that he can sign. >> ifill: mr. obama is scheduled to unveil his own ideas on immigration reform tomorrow in las vegas. >> woodruff: so how will the politics of this new effort shake out on capitol hill? we asked two senators from the gang of eight. first my conversation with democratic senator dick durbin of illinois. i talked to the majority whip just a short time ago. senator durbin, thank you very much for joining us. i think one of the main questions i'm hearing is, what does this proposal mean for people living
to help republicans? nah, i don't think so. all right, into that and a whole mess of other issues but first here we get the latest, today's current news update, lisa ferguson standing by in our studios in los angeles. good morning lisa. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. today, president obama unveils his own new plan for immigration reform he's speaking in las vegas at 11:55 this morning and we're expecting this to be a more liberal plan than the blueprint the senate laid out yesterday. as bill mentioned a group of eight bipartisan senators have been work behind closed doors and finally released their new plan yesterday on capitol hill. some three basic bullet points from that plan, it would provide a path to probationary legal status for most of the country's 11 million illegal immigrants provided they do not have a criminal background. it would also call for a way to it's allow low-skilled immigrants like farm workers to enter the country but only when the economy is good and the details on how it would exactly go about that are still a bit fuzzy. it would call for a mandatory
